The Helambu hike is a short and easy hike in Nepal that is easily accessible from Kathmandu. The Helambu Trekking is a popular trek among trekkers due to its scenery and favorable environment. The Helambu Trek offers breathtaking mountain views, charming Sherpa communities, and, most all, intact culture. This is more of a cultural excursion than a mountain or glacier expedition. Sherpas in Helambu differ from those in the Khumbu region. Trekkers will encounter a large number of Buddhist monasteries in the villages because the region is predominantly Buddhist. Tarkeghyang is another Sherpa settlement along the road, with its own narrative.

Our hike begins in Kathmandu, after traveling by bus or car to Sundarijal, which is only 13 kilometers away. We next ascend to Chisopani, where we spend our first night just outside the valley. Chisopani provides a stunning view of the mountain and its surroundings. Then we travel nearly a circle, passing via Khtumsang, Tharapati, Tarkeghyang, Sarmathang, and finally, Melamchi Pul, where we catch a bus to Kathmandu.
